New York [March 25, 2019] Kansas City’s crumbling manors get massive makeovers from home renovator Tamara Day in the new season of HGTV’s Bargain Mansions. Premiering Monday, April 15, with back-to-back episodes at 9 and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, the 14-episode season follows Tamara, a busy mother of four, as she snags unbelievable deals on large downtrodden properties and puts her passion for restoration to work. Throughout the season, Tamara preserves the historic charm and unique architectural features of each dwelling, such as antique light fixtures, clawfoot tubs and vintage doors with original hardware. She later incorporates modern layouts and luxurious amenities to attract top dollar from the right buyer.
“Kansas City is full of inexpensive big old mansions in a decrepit state that scare away most buyers, but these are the homes I want the most,” said Tamara. “With lots of time and TLC, I can turn the properties into spacious, stylish homes that are perfect for today’s families.”
The premiere episode finds Tamara at a massive 6,000-square-foot Colonial built in 1905. The once-stately home requires a major overhaul to bring it up to modern standards. Working alongside her father and mentor, Ward, she opens up the dining room area and designs the kitchen with custom cabinetry, striking pendant lights and a massive island that high-end buyers will love. Tamara also adds a large pantry with stunning glass shelving and a powder bathroom on the first floor.
